Coleman is a controversial placement as party chair since he was a previous VP Chair under Lester Ray Wisegerber. People who follow our local Republican Party history will remember that during Coleman’s and Wisegerber’s tenure, Chairman Wisegerber made the infamous R’s and D’s statement- basically saying that it didn’t matter if you had a (R) or a (D) next to your name and if you promoted the Republican Party you were "crazy".
There are those who say this move to place Coleman in as party chair was done to help unscrupulous RINO’s and corrupt Democrat carpetbaggers slip into our party. One clue to the possible further defilement of our local party is the embracing of Coleman by the local democrat/liberal Liberty County media.
Coleman's actions as party chair will be watched closely. It is LD's hope that Coleman acts to protect and strengthen our party, not bring more internal damage.
The battle lines are quickly being drawn… Stay tuned.
